You worked hard to create your course, but how do you know it was effective? In this session you'll learn the difference between assessment and evaluation, and techniques to measure what matters in learner abilities and course effectiveness. We'll examine what the research says about making learning transferrable and ways to let the learners authentically show what they know. You'll also learn how to determine if the course met its intended goal and how to represent your data to your stakeholders as ROI (return on investment) or ROE (return on expectations).

In this session you will learn:

  • The difference between assessment and evaluation
  • How to define the target goal so you know what you're aiming for
  • How to create authentic assessments so learners can show what they know
  • What to ask in evaluations to get the data you need
